This week I’m working on getting one of the WIMU units here to talk to a base station via an RF link. It’s a chance to try out the radio network stack I’m working on at last! Also developing a GUI for it, so it’s time to brush up on my Tcl!
I took a look at Eric Kidd’s XML-RPC for C and C++ library, but I think I’m just going to code the diary/.plan file synchroniser with sockets myself. It’s too awkward to set up the Expat and the XML-RPC libraries here with the administrative restrictions on the Solaris boxen here at work. I hate reinventing the wheel, but seeing as all I need is a little cog and not F1 slicks, it’s probably for the best.
